Here is an overview of the game, via Play-Asia:


Game developer and publisher FuRyu officially announced Caligula: Overdose last November 2017 via a live stream. Caligula: Overdose will be a full remake of the PS Vita title, The Caligula Effect, which was developed by Aquria.

Furthermore, H2 Interactive got the publishing rights for the Asia Version of Caligula Overdose and developed by the good team of FuRyu. This upcoming remake is getting reworked with Unreal Engine 4, which enhances its graphics and user interface, as well as its accessibility. In addition, this remake will feature dual story routes, renewed features, and new and returning characters.

Also, FuRyu granted one of the most requested features of the fans, which is the option for a female protagonist. FuRyu will add it in and she will be voiced by the famous Miyuki Sawashiro. In fact, she is the elder sister of Chiharu Sawashiro who is the voice actor for the original male protagonist. And we have spotted a Twitter user who’s excited for this brother and sister portrayal in Caligula: Overdose. See his reaction to this below.

Key Features

  • Caligula: Overdose boasts enhanced visuals and gameplay. Explore new scenarios, endings, and the “Forbidden Musician Route” while escaping the virtual world of Mobius.
